Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Review

: In a city full of steakhouses, the Houston branch of this New York chain isn’t much of a standout. But that doesn’t mean the Highland Village restaurant isn’t packed with a see-and-be-seen crowd. The bar throng is particularly lively, but diners also seem to like the basic steakhouse fare, including a filet mignon, prime rib and a duo of beef tenderloin medallions. Lobster, grilled salmon and swordfish steak au poivre highlight the seafood side of the menu. There's an interesting but overpriced wine list, so we stick to the stiff cocktails; and the desserts, like the coconut layer cake, are good bets. An equally good value is the weekend brunch, where entrées come with a free blood orange mimosa. Try the steak and eggs dish or the lobster BLT.
